Our client in this case wanted to make their investment decision on an absolute worst-case scenario. All of the modelling for the investment forecasting was based on the assumption that the electricity generated would be sold directly to the grid, essentially for a ‘wholesale’ price. In fact the vast majority of the electricity will be used on site, realising a cost saving far higher than the ‘export’ sale price. This means that they can be confident of achieving a much faster rate of return on their money.
